A review of some analytical solutions to the Grad-Shafranov equation

Abstract

In this paper an overview of analytical solutions to the Grad-Shafranov equation for the tokamak equilibrium is given as is a short derivation of the governing equation. First, a solution to the homogeneous equation is presented. Subsequently, three analytical solutions corresponding to three different source functions are defined. Finally, some illustrative examples are given.
